    Aug 2, 2009, 6:45 PM - How Do You Dent Sintra Armor? #1

    First of all, support from the DH community has been awesome. Thanks.

    I was able to find templates and tutorials to create the armor from Sintra. I just finished cutting the armor (see pic for an XL person) and shaping it seems pretty straight forward based on the threads I have read. The question I have is how do you dent it? It is the same method (heat, apply dent pressure, and cool) or does it require other techniques. Just thought I would ask before I screw something up and have to be talked off a ledge or punish my liver for my mistakes.

    What I used when making armor out of sintra was a heat gun. Just heat up the spot you want to dent and then I used the handles on different sized screwdriver to make the dents, a little at a time until I was happy with the result.
